10.6: A Service to shorten URLs

I thought of doing that, but doesn't it download the webpage instead of reading the file? Or am I confused?

Without any options cURL returns the contents of the URL. In this case it would be the shortened URL.

Doggone it! I should've known. It would make the hint above that much easier. Why don't you submit that, saying it's an updated version? I'll give my permission, it's recorded here.
